As the pandemic panic porn continues because identified cases are rising, Dr. Fauci is back on television, and the media is once again demanding a national response. However, there is news they don’t share with you that could help reduce the already unwarranted levels of fear. Obviously, that doesn’t fit their partisan agenda.
Many commentators have noted that rising case numbers are not necessarily a reason to sound the alarm. The fear with COVID-19 was always overwhelming the hospital system.
The correct numbers to look at are COVID-19 hospitalizations, percent positive tests, and the age breakdown for severe disease.
A doctor from the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center said in a press conference Wednesday that people who are testing positive do not appear to be getting as sick as they did earlier in the pandemic. Dr. Donald Yealy also noted this trend was being seen in the wake of massive protests.
“We need to change our mindset and focus not exclusively on the number of cases, but on the severity of illness. We shouldn’t just be counting those who have a diagnosed infection,” Yealy said.
“For the vast majority of people testing positive, their illness is mild, or they don’t even know they have any symptoms of COVID-19 infection.”
Dr. Yealy also noted that the positive case rate was about one in 400, which has remained steady for weeks.
“In summary, what our experience shows is that fewer people are being admitted, and when they are, they tend to be much less sick than at the beginning or at the peak phases of the pandemic.”

Nothing is coincidental. Everything is political.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot easily achieve ‘mail-in’ voting; which they desperately need in key battleground states in order to control the outcome.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot shut down rallies and political campaigning efforts of President Trump; which they desperately need to do in key battleground states.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot block the campaign contrast between an energetic President Trump and a physically tenuous, mentally compromised, challenger.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats do not have an excuse for cancelling the DNC convention in Milwaukee; thereby blocking Team Bernie Sanders from visible opposition while protecting candidate gibberish from himself.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats do not have a mechanism to keep voters isolated from each-other; limiting communication and national debate adverse to their interests. COVID-19 panic pushes the national conversation into the digital space where Big Tech controls every element of the conversation.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot keep their Blue state economies easily shut-down and continue to block U.S. economic growth. All thriving economies are against the political interests of Democrats.
♦Without COVID-19 panic Democrats cannot easily keep club candidate Joe Biden sealed in the basement; where the electorate is not exposed to visible signs of his dementia.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., ripped into Democrats Wednesday after the bill he authored on police reform failed in the Senate on a procedural vote, accusing Democrats of punting on the issue until after the election and abusing what he described as their "monopoly" on black voters. “They cannot allow this party to be seen as a party that reaches out to all communities in this nation,” he said of congressional Democrats.
He turned to Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments that Republicans are "trying to get away with murder, actually – the murder of George Floyd," calling those remarks "toxic."
The procedural vote on whether to start debate was 55-45; it needed 60 votes in order to proceed. Republicans had 53 votes, but not enough Democrats joined them. This effectively freezes police reform in Congress.

President Trump’s rally on Saturday attracted a record-setting audience on TV despite the smaller-than-expected crowd in attendance at the Tulsa, Okla., event. A whopping 7.7 million total viewers tuned into Fox News from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. EDT during Trump’s remarks, making it the most watched Saturday in the network’s history during that time period, according to early Nielsen data. The Trump campaign has stated that even more viewers tuned in when including the significant audience that watched via streaming platforms.
The mainstream media has focused on the crowd size, with some top Democrats gloating that teenage activists sabotaged the turnout through Chinese video-sharing platform TikTok. Liberal pundits have labeled the rally a disappointment because of the in-person attendance figures
The Trump campaign fired back, saying that media organizations are complicit in spreading false narratives about the event — and that protesters and the coronavirus were the real culprits.
“Leftists and online trolls doing a victory lap, thinking they somehow impacted rally attendance, don’t know what they’re talking about or how our rallies work," Trump's campaign manager Brad Parscale said.

Republicans Must Understand: We Are at War
Let's look at the battle lines.
On the one side, we have a loose collection of freedom-lovers, conservatives, traditionalists, free-marketers, and rational and logical people (let's call them Republicans, if for no other reason than that we need a shorthand label). The Republicans have the presidency, the Senate, and the independent media — which is certainly better than nothing.
On the other side, there is a tightly knitted confederacy of Marxists, communists, socialists, relativists, hive-minders, grievance-mongers, Stockholm syndrome sufferers, and criminal cabals (let's call this group Democrats). The Democrats have the House of Representatives...and the mainstream media, academia, education, Hollywood.
Their recent tactics include house arrest .. and burning cities to the ground .. and there is nothing saying they're going to stop there. (Next stop: defund the police and take away your guns.)
Electing President Trump was a good start, and we need to ensure his re-election. However, his presidency should be viewed as an opening salvo as opposed to a final blow. Let them know we're on the offensive and no longer willing to run and hide and hope they leave us alone.
Happy Fathers Day
Speaking for one hour, 41 minutes, President Trump thrilled a crowd of supporters at a campaign rally in Tulsa, OK
The president appeared energized by the thousands of supporters in the arena, even though it fell short of filling the BOK Center stadium and did not have overflow crowds as the campaign expected. Democrats and corporate media fueled fears about the rally for weeks after it was announced, warning that it would lead to more coronavirus infections and deaths as the pandemic continued.
Trump took the stage at about 8:30 p.m. thanking the crowds for coming anyway. “You are warriors,” he said. “I’ve been watching the fake news for weeks now and everything is negative.”
Trump recalled that his campaign for reelection was looking great before the coronavirus, citing the strong economy. “It was happening before this COVID came in,” he said. “It was happening at a level that nobody believed possible, and then China sent us the plague.”
